This documentary follows a group of adventurers into the Amazon jungle to catch animals to be shipped to zoo's in the USA. The ease in which the hunters catch the animals and how quickly they become tame once in captivity indicates most of the footage shot in this film was rehearsed. One sequence where one of the adventurers battles a boa constrictor is obviously staged. One scene the narrator describes a caiman as an alligator, even though alligators are native to Florida and China and not Brazil. The title comes from the local word for caiman, in which the film describes as the "terror of the Amazon." This is quite an exaggeration, while any large member of the order crocodilia is potentially dangerous, it is the true crocodile that is responsible for most man eatings in South America and not species of the caiman family.

Lots of scientific errors. Things that won't was now, like animals either being evil or good, murderers or gentle. Lots of words pronounced differently now as well, but still good entertainment. Frank Buck was only a narrator for this one.

This movie has Frank Buck in it so it might be okay.
But I couldn't get any sound so I didn't watch it.
I've tried to watch it several times but never any sound.
